Water main breaks in Fullerton

November 13, 2010|By Larry Carson, The Baltimore Sun

Water should be restored Sunday to the last of 115 homes left without service by a 12 inch water main break that caused Dunfield Road in Fullerton to collapse and temporarily lowered water pressure at the Oak Crest Village retirement complex.

Dunfield Road from Stillmeadow to Bel Air roads near Tapu Court is closed while workers address the damage, said Kurt Kocher, spokesman of Baltimore's Department of Public Works. The water flowed into a nearby wetlands area, so no homes were damaged, he said. Kocher said contractors will likely take a week to repair the street.

When water does return, Kocher said, residents should remove faucet aerators and let the water run until it is clear of sediment.
